Admin Columns for ACF Fields

Description

Use this plugin to show ACF fields in the “All Posts” table view in the WordPress admin backend.

Simply enable the new option “Admin Column” in your ACF field settings for any regular field (see exceptions below). Now there will be an extra column for your field shown in any overview of posts, pages, taxonomies or your custom post types or taxonomies (e.g. “All Pages”).

You can use filters (see below) to control the plugin’s behaviour even more precisely.

Works on any regular ACF field (see exceptions below).

Compatible with Advanced Custom Fields 5.x
